LeBron James: Wait, he didn’t text Kevin Durant with tempting offer?
James, 33, is now deciding where he wants to play for the foreseeable future as the Los Angeles Lakers are reportedly in the mix to sign the four-time league MVP. He could be there longer than usual. But speculation is still rampant that James could sign with Lakers, considering he has a home in Los Angeles.
But George has chose to re-sign with the Oklahoma City Thunder, raising doubts on whether James could head to the Lakers.
Finally in not so surprising news- LeBron James is a free agent.
With the NBA free agency season approaching and basketball fans wondering where LeBron James and Paul George will be playing next season, the biggest domino may be Kawhi Leonard. Though there's still a chance that King James will choose to stay with the Cavs, sources say he is eyeing teams like the Lakers and 76ers.
The 33-year-old superstar has spent the last four seasons with the Cavs, with whom he reached four straight NBA Finals and won a championship in 2016. James has not publicly commented on what team he will sign with as his family and close advisers consider offers at his "decision cave" in the Caribbean.
Of course, Paul George is among those players headling this year's free agency pool.
James opted out of his player option, effectively making him an unrestricted free agent. The Indiana University product excelled for the Lakers' G League affiliate but averaged 1.5 points and 1.1 rebounds in 15 appearances for Los Angeles.
Gilbert and James mended some fences for his return in 2014, but they remain distant other than a shared commitment to winning. According to ESPN, James could still fetch as much as $207 million over five years from the Cavaliers, while other teams can offer a max of $152 million over four years.
As expected, Golden State Warriors forward and two-time NBA Finals MVP Kevin Durant re-signed with the Bay Area team, inking a two-year, $61.5 million deal.
"This will be about more than just this summer's transaction". This is also the first offseason in which Ben Simmons and Joel Embiid are fully healthy. Cleveland has deep salary-cap issues - partially caused by James' failure to commit long-term - and the Cavs now lack enough talent to unseat the champion Golden State Warriors.
Always one to pride himself on efficiency, James shot 54.2 percent from the field and 36.7 percent from three-point range.
